Setanta Records


I’ve been a fan of The Tacticians for a while now, so I was excited to see that they signed a record deal and will soon be releasing a full length.

If you want to learn more about the band, check out the interview and video I’ve posted.


From an e-mail I received this morning from the band: We’re happy to announce that we have signed a deal with Setanta Records, home of formidable artists such as Edwyn Collins, The Divine Comedy, Evan Dando, Richard Hawley, The Chalets, Noonday Underground and many others. We’ve been busy recording our debut album which is scheduled for release in late spring. Needless to say we are very excited. Thanks to everyone for your support so far. Keep checking for news.
